E-Book by Mark JacksonOffensive Coordinator, Seckman High School, Imperial, MOCreator and Operator of the Christian Football Coaches Web Page
This book is dedicated to my wife, Kim Jackson, who supports all my football adventuresand me. She is a wonderful person who keeps me on the right road.This book would not be possible without the gifts of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.To Him be the glory for all my successes and failures. Through him I can do all thingsthrough Christ who strengthens me.
I have become a student of the spread offense. I have a passion for the game of football and love to talk football. I believe that the spread is the best offense for ourmodern game. That players love to play the spread and that the offense brings excitementto the game. It is more fun not only to play, but is a blast to coach. It forces defenses toadjust to you and not the other way around. If the offense is executed properly, it isalmost impossible to stop. Most importantly, the offense creates points and theopportunity for big plays. I don’t know about how High School football in your area, butit has been my experience that in a majority of games the team that creates the most bigplays wins the ball game.We will start our discussion of the offense by talking about the philosophy of theoffense then continue on to outline the details of the offense. I will present a play callingand naming system in which I am comfortable with and is based on the use of wristbands, this is not to say that whatever system you would like to use can not be done. Letme stress that I think the spread, and for that matter any offense, is better suited for the nohuddle offense. It is also important to point out, that I do not believe that the spread issomething you do in addition to your regular offense. If you are a wishbone team, thenrun the wishbone, if you start playing around with the spread to help your wishbone itwill not be efficient and you will not get good enough at it to force teams to honor it. Iguess what I am saying is sell out and run the spread, not as part of your offense, but asyour offense.I am a football coach, not a novelist or award winning author, I intend this e-book to be a body of knowledge. I hope that you find it easy to read and easy to understand.Thanks for your time and enjoy my e-book.
My Football Coaching PrayerFather God,I come before you in the name of Jesus and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Fatherlead and guide me as I coach. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Andif I put God first, the desires of my heart will be given to me. I speak blessings and favor forthis football team because I am a child of God by the blood of the lamb. Father, use me toimpact lives in a positive Godly manner as I coach today. Let my actions speak for meFather, and let my tongue be used in a manner that will glorify you. I pray for thecoaching staff and players. Let us remain injury free and let everything that is done bepleasing to you. You are my source and my strength and let me not forget who I am in you.Let me walk in a way that is worthy of my calling. I will walk victoriously both on and offthe field because you are my strength. We pray these things in the mighty name of Jesus.Amen
